Who Knew? Cows Save the Planet
Looking for a good read? Something to think about on the eve of Earth Day? Cows Save the Planet, by journalist Judith D. Schwartz, just might be the most important - and surprising - book you read this year. Did you know that undergrazing land is just as bad for the soil as overgrazing? And that while we love to blame SUVs and factories for all that carbon dioxide that’s burning up the planet, we should really be blaming our unsustainable agriculture system? Schwartz writes about the problems we face, and how we can turn these crises into opportunities. Think of her book as a call to action for the soil. And as gardeners, farmers and organic food consumers, what could be more important on Earth Day?
